In this TED talk, Rachel Pike emphasises the quantity of scientific research which has contributed to our current understanding of climate change, explaining how her own PhD project might feed into the summary reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The talk is from 2009, but it is highly relevant following the release of the latest IPCC reports, which are based on thousands more scientific results than their predecessors.

Given the frequency with which headline climate change statements are challenged, this snappy insight into the scientific process seems like a helpful intervention.
